The list of premium apps and services that Samsung is going to offer to Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users includes 22 entries, from games, to productivity apps, to various subscriptions.
We’ve already learned that Fleksy will be one of the perks offered in the digital gift bags coming with the Galaxy S6, but now we have the full list, and there’s a little something for everyone in there. For now, we only know the names of the apps and services that Samsung is bundling, with more details about the actual value of these freebies to come closer to the actual release date.
Samsung has greatly reduced the number of apps that are pre-installed on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. It’s telling that there are only two screens of apps in the app launcher, although that’s partially due to Samsung grouping Google apps in one folder.
It’s good to see Samsung giving up on its obsession with bundling apps and services with its devices – though generally regarded as bloatware, these apps are still useful for some users; making them optional seems like the best compromise.
